Disney CEO Iger quits Trump council over climate decision

The three leaders tried to convince Trump last week at a Group of Seven summit to stay in the pact and honor us commitments undertaken by the previous administration.

One of Trump's central stated reasons for pulling out of the Paris Accords was that it would allegedly export American jobs from the U.S. to foreign countries.

At that point, the United States enters a one-year waiting period before it's formally removed.

Belgian Prime Minister Charles MichelCharles Michel termed Trump's decision as a "brutal act". Iger has aligned with the president on some issues, but clashed on others. But it also undermines world efforts to combat global warming. The pullout will align America with Syria and Nicaragua as the world's only non-participants in the accord, Reuters said.

President Trump's announcement Thursday that he will pull the United States from the Paris Climate Accord is generating mixed reaction in Delaware.

The US was one of 195 nations that agreed to the accord in Paris in December 2015.

German's Foreign Ministry said the United States was harming itself, Europeans and the rest of the world by pulling out of the pact.

"If we don't do anything, we might shoot over 5 degrees or more and that would be catastrophic", said John Reilly, the co-director of the program, adding that MIT's scientists had had no contact with the White House and were not offered a chance to explain their work.

With his fierce handshake and harsh words, France's new president is on an anti-Trump bender. Trump signed an executive order in March calling on the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider the latter set of regulations on fossil fuel pollution, and to end the federal government's court battle against West Virginia, which sued to prevent the rules from going into effect.

French President Emmanuel MacronMacron called Trump's decision not to honor the Paris agreement a "mistake" and ruled out of any renegotiation.

"So much of what he said is wrong".

The US, exceeded only by China in greenhouse gas emissions, accounts for more than 15 percent of the worldwide total.

The Paris Agreement remains a historic treaty signed by 194 and ratified by 147 countries. Already we are seeing more coastal loss than anywhere else in the USA and among the fastest in the world.

Trump said during last year's presidential election campaign that he would take the step to help his country's oil and coal industries.

Mr Naughten warned: "We are all vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and we all have a responsibility to address climate change within our respective capabilities. Leaving Paris is not good for America or the world", Musk said.

I know many of you share my disappointment with the White House's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement.

Aims to keep average global temperature rises "well below" 2C above pre-industrial levels by 2100, and "endeavour to limit" them to 1.5C.

"A risky world", said Macron to open his English-language statement, referring to the controversial theory that climate change is a national security risk.

In a statement backed by all 28 European Union states, the European Union and China were poised to commit to full implementation of the agreement, officials said.

The body's commissioner for climate action and energy Miguel Arias Canete also pledged continued "global leadership" on climate change.

It called the withdrawal "reckless" and would "waste increasingly finite USA diplomatic resources".

"We're disappointed with the decision to exit the Paris Agreement".
